  • Pre-delivery Inspection (PDI) Facility

    IF this new PDI center is truly committed to ensure high quality units leave the factory, this will be a very good thing .... their quality has gone down since being purchased by Thor .... no shock there


    "Earlier this year, Jayco also opened a new pre-delivery inspection (PDI) facility on its Middlebury campus. The new facility is in addition to two other facilities being utilized and increases overall audit capacity."

    Fun Time RV out of Cleburne, TX, announced several months ago they were putting in a PDI facility for ALL makes they sell to be checked before delivery to their stores. Seems like maybe the wave of complaints + slowdown in sales is finally bringing about some sanity in RV quality output?

        Spoke with a manager up at United RV near DFW and he told me these pre-sale PDI places (the one for Fun Town specifically) were having a hard time finding help and the Fun Town PDI place up in Indiana was almost empty as there was no help to be found.

          not surprised to hear it .... with the upturn in the nation's economy, production is way up and there is a shortage of experienced labor .... in a predelivery inspection facility, the workers need to have a troubleshooter's understanding of all components, their install and performance .... workers with that level of skill/experience are hard to come by
